    Nicos,

    First off, you should be sure that your terminal app is set to send data in binary format.

    If you do the correct steps to load the OS file in the updating PDF, it should work. Did you follow the instructions on page 8?

    – – – – – – – – – –
    First, we will tell Octopus that we are about to send something, so Octopus will open a connection and wait for the file to be transmitted. We issue the following command (followed by pressing “Enter”):

    Octopus> load -m ymodem -b 0x00010000

    Send the new OS file to Octopus
    With Octopus waiting for the transmission (as we saw above) you should then proceed with sending the OS .elf file using the YModem protocol, supported by your terminal program. To do this, on zTerm we choose the menu “File -> Send Files -> YModem-1k”. Other terminal programs may vary in terminology slightly.

    When prompted, select the .elf OS file to be sent from where you have stored it locally and press the “Open” button.
    – – – – – – – – – –

    Note that the latest version of OS 1.62 was made by one of our community of users, and contains some post-genoQs fixes, including improved MIDI sync. It’s located here:

    http://www.socialentropy.com/studio/OCT_162_jk03.elf

    See the forum thread in this section called "multiple h/w sequencers & timing" for the background on this.

    I’ll be happy to try to help more if no one else responds!

    Sorry to keep you waiting Nicos, I thought maybe you would email me directly.

    Once your terminal program recognizes that Octopus is connected, press and release the reset button. As you know, the terminal should say:

    Octopus> go

    …BUT according to your posting, instead there is a message that Octopus has a problem booting on its own.

    Try doing the next step in the procedure anyway:

    Hold down the *control* key and the C key on your computer’s keyboard, and then press the reset button and hold it for 2 seconds, then release. Now quickly release the two keyboard keys. This should interrupt whatever is going wrong anyway.

    (Extra ^C’s are OK as long as the last line is there!)

    …then you should be okay to continue.

    Complete the last line exactly as below, then hit ENTER:

    Octopus> load -m ymodem -b 0x00010000

    The Terminal program will let you navigate to the OS file.

    Now go to page 10 of the PDF instructions to continue.
    Let us know if it works!

    If you are not sure about any part of the procedure that comes after this, don’t worry–you’ll be able to start over!

    Nicos,

    Are you using the OCT_162_jk03.elf, with a file size of 304,848 bytes? Be sure your copy of the file is good.

    Do you have your terminal program set to send the .elf file in binary format? Look in the settings menu and be sure "binary" is checked. That has been a problem for some people.

    Let me know if anything gets better!

    What happens if you enter the "fis list" command after writing the new OS to flash? See the bottom of Page 10 of the PDF. Does the result look like this?

    Octopus> fis list
    Name FLASH addr Mem addr Length Entry point

    Have you tried updating using a different .elf file? Have you tried the one on this site?

    What happens if you go back to v1.60? The link to that file is the one in the PDF instructions, even though the link URL says 1.62.

    The USB update to 1.6.2 is not on this website, but I can give you the .elf file if you need it.

    Which model is your Octopus? What serial number? I’m curious about whether it’s an older or newer one. What OS was in the machine before?

    Sounds like the machine is functioning OK, which is a good thing–it just doesn’t like the file.

    Did you send email to the genoQs guys and get no reply?

    #2995

    Nicos, did you buy this machine directly from genoQs, or was it a used one?

    Did the machine work for you before this problem happened?

    Maybe problem is in the flash memory, but if so, this is the first such instance I’ve heard of with an Octopus. I’m sorry I can’t be more helpful.

    thank you for the help so far, cikira,i appreciate it.
    I was sent mail to the genoqs and Gabriel replied.
    Today i sent him details for the problem, and wait anxiously what to do.

    i have bought the octopus from the genoqs a year ago, and everything goes well until the upgrades…..
